No Man’s Sky Orbital – Gameplay Loop

The gameplay loop of No Man’s Sky revolves around exploring planets in your ships collecting resources and upgrading your ship. Exploration is the biggest feature of this game as there are almost endless amounts of planets and galaxies to conquer and explore. Every planet is procedurally generated so players will have different experiences based on their gameplay.

Players can also have deep customization options for their ship and attire. Initially, the game was stale as there was not much to do but eventually, this game became one of the finest examples of a space exploration game and is a must-play for fans of Space-themed genre games.

No Man’s Sky Orbital- The Breakdown

The developers were smart with the release date of this update as No Man’s Sky Orbital update is releasing on the 27th of March (get it?).  The 1st and foremost update in this game is that the space station has been completely refreshed and overhauled to give a smoother experience.

The procedurally generated customization option of the station has been changed too. A few lighting effects and visual upgrades have been added to the space station. The UI changes help the player to access the quick menu to switch their ships while on the space station.

No Man’s Sky Gameplay

Another big update includes the fleet missions in the game where players can call home via the starship communicator while away on expeditions and also the command terminal on the freighter.

The fleet commander might also seek your help in complicated situations and directly ask for a favor as needed. The player’s decision-making skills are tested in such scenarios and the outcome reflects these fleet missions. Other bug fixes have been applied to the fleet missions.

Finally, the most interesting part of the No Man’s Sky Orbital update is the Starship Customization options. A new Starship Fabricator has been added to the space station that will help layers build custom starships such as fighters, haulers, or explorers. Another feature is that while salvaging a ship, players can target specific parts of the ship for looting and making their own custom-made new show. As expected, players can also customize the color schemes of the new ship.
